    • I’m wondering if anyone is working on this. Firefox will have it fixed as of 49, and Chrome has had it fixed since v22.

    • oninput="getFunction();" in a SELECT element does not function at all in Edge. It does not work in IE11. It does not work in FF 45. It does work in Chrome. It does work in Safari.

    • FF is current 47, not 45, so 45 doesn’t really matter.

    • So nothing is done yet… 2 years… are you serious??
      Could you, please, fix this as soon as possible because we’ve got a lot of problems with this as we need to add several event listeners only for Edge browser??? Or, maybe, you want to make it the new IE? Every other browser handle it in correct way.

    • This issue still exits…

    • How on earth is this still not fixed?! It’s been reported for almost 3 years now. And it seems like a pretty minor fix to be honest.

    • Very annoying issue!

    • NOTE

      For posterity - the workaround I used was to capture the change event (emitted on the element)
